Hi all! Quickie update :)
Life-altering things have happened this week. I need to check and find out what and how much I’m allowed to say, but looks as though I’m on the brink of exiting homelessness for good, so keep your fingers crossed for me!
Other than that, keeping on keeping on. Matt’s still in Scotland, and is likely to be for about another month or so. He’s working super hard keeping up HomelessTales.com, as always, and we’re still batting around red tape and fun things that have to be settled before we can marry or anything. Still in love and so happy about it though, and that’s going a great ways toward keeping my spirits up.
I may have stable housing soon but will still, of course, continue advocating for homelessness, on this blog and elsewhere! In fact, I’m glad to have recently done at least a little bit for a couple of girls on the east coast who were thrown out by their parents due to their sexual orientation, and are now living in a car in freezing weather conditions. An appeal on Twitter brought a lot of fantastic suggestions for shelters, programs, donations, and just ways to keep warm in their current situation. The girls wish for their names and location to remain anonymous, understandably, but I wanted to give them a shout-out on the blog and let them know that there are so many people rooting for them. I also want to thank everybody on Twitter who reached out to help them, many mere moments after I posted the plea.
So, yep yep. Thanks to my loyal readers for sticking around! Also, I’m in the Guardian today, apparently. I did this interview quite a while ago, and had assumed that it wasn’t going to go to print, since I didn’t hear back for so long. So, an extra little bonus surprise today!
